Cookies are an integral part of my life, so I've taken it upon myself to nail the classics, like the best chocolate chip cookie recipe, sugar cookie recipe, and oatmeal cookies. And a little life hack, make a double batch, roll the cookie dough into balls and keep half stocked in the freezer, so you'll always have freshly baked cookies ready at a moment's notice.
Making homemade brownies from scratch is so simple. I've got a bunch of foolproof brownie recipes, but if you're looking for one to blow all of the others out of the water, it's my slutty brownies, hands down.
What's better than a giant cookie bar?! Not only are cookie bars so easy to make, but they're always a crowdpleaser. Try making the caramel apple cheesecake bars, or the snickerdoodle blondie bars, and you'll be amazed. And can we settle the center piece or corner debate once and for all? The center pieces are, without a doubt, THE BEST.
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Lightly butter a 9 inch skillet.
Melt the butter and set aside to cool.
Sift the cocoa powder and flour together and set aside.
In your mixer, beat the eggs and sugar on medium-high speed for 5 to 10 minutes, until very thick and light yellow. After 10 minutes, reduce the speed to low and add the vanilla, coffee extract, and the cocoa powder and flour mixture. Mix very slowly until everything is just combined. Slowly pour in the cooled butter and mix again just until combined.
Pour the mixture into the skillet and place it in a larger baking pan. Add warm water to the pan until it comes halfway up the side of the dish Carefully place it into the oven, making sure not to slosh the water around and bake for 60 minutes.
When it's time to take it out - don't fear - it's absolutely going to look like it's under-baked. (that's normal) Remove the skillet from the water and place in the fridge to cool. Serve in the skillet with ice cream on the side.
This is a really fun one to make - I encourage you to eat right from the pan with family!
